, the league of women voters called on the republican governor, rick scott, to extend voting hours. scott's response was, early voting is going just fine and i hope everybody gets to vote. and today, democratic senator bell nelson, who himself is running for re-election, sent a letter to the governor asking the governor to extend early voting at least by one day. but we don't believe there has been a response from the governor on that. so at this point, we believe the voting will end an hour and a half. but if you're in line and you see the long line, in line at 7:00. you will be allowed to vote. even if it is 9 or 1:00 when you get -- 10:00 when you get in there. >>> give it some time, may the best man win? you have just a couple of days to cast your vote in the presidential election, then rush home to watch cnn's live coverage of the election, starting at 6 eastern. >>> you know, with many without power after superstorm sandy, people are finding creative ways to help each other. next, i want you to meet an 11-year-old girl who found a way to help her neighbors and the red cross. things

senator bill nelson there, has asked the republican governor, rick scott, to extend early voting. this being the last day. so far, the governor has said no. there's a lot for the justice department observers to keep an eye on, at least in the sunshine state. >> and so joe, are we talking about just extending it throughout the day instead of say, 7:00 being the time the polls close this evening, it would be 10:00 p.m., or are we talking about extending it into a whole other day? >> i have heard it both ways. i heard extending it into sunday, of course, that's problematic because as you know, the state of florida passed a bunch of different laws including cutting off that last sunday before election day as an early voting day. they say they did that because they wanted to give the election officials more time to prepare for tuesday. and the idea that they would now come at the 11th hour and switch back to the old scheme doesn't sound like something the governor would want to do. >> okay, and as it pertains to the justice department election monitors, what would they be doing as the
